Former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin has said that he would like to see Everton manager David Moyes in charge of Chelsea in the future.

Chelsea recently sacked their manager Andre Villas-Boas after a string of poor results, which has left the club with a major doubt of being able to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Winning the Champions League has been one of the major aims of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, and the prospect of not being able to qualify for this elite competition in the first place has resulted in the sacking of manager Andre Villas-Boas after just 257 days.

Former winger Pat Nevin has represented Chelsea in more than 150 appearances over the years. He left for Everton for close to £ 1 million during the late 1980s after Chelsea were relegated down to the second division. He is of the opinion that current Everton manager David Moyes would be a suitable option for Chelsea, who are looking to replace Andre Villas-Boas in the summer. There will be no announcement made now because of the fact that assistant manager Roberto di Matteo has been put in place till the end of the season.

“From a Chelsea point of view, it would be lovely if Jose Mourinho would come back, and we know he was in England last week. It’s such a long shot, although nothing surprises me in football any more. If it was me making the decision, I would grab Everton’s David Moyes immediately and tell him to start a new dynasty,” former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin said when asked about the potential candidates for the Chelsea managerial role by BBC sport.

Amongst fans placing football bets, Barcelona manager Guardiola and Real Madrid manager José Mourinho are the favourites to take over, while former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez remains an outside option.
